Postural Analysis

Postural Analysis at Massotherapy and Wellness - Ed Montgomery

The process of evaluating a patient's positioning of his or her body and limbs to determine directly observable physical abnormalities.

A postural assessment is important to identify the causes of a range of issues from headaches to stiff and knotted shoulders, aching arms and ankles, knee pain, low back pain, as well as sciatic pain.

Occurring over time, muscles get stuck in irregular holding patterns due to injury or strain. Your skeletal and muscular systems keep each other in balance. Past injuries and improper healing can throw off the entire structural balance of a person’s body, leading to muscle compensation and poor postural habits.

Through postural analysis it is possible to determine which areas of their body are under more strain than others, and which muscle groups are causing this strain.

Ed assists in improving posture by breaking up old scar tissue, loosening tight muscles and fascia, freeing up restricted movement, and improving overall range of motion. These benefits allow the body to fall back into a more normal and symmetrical alignment.

So we look forward to spending additional time on postural assessment that will lead to more successful massage treatments.

I’m also a Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) provider, which means that I’m legally permitted to work on injured workers in conjunction with chiropractors and other medical professionals to help facilitate rehabilitation with massotherapy.  I am able to work on clients and bill BWC for services rendered.

Like I said, this isn’t your typical relaxation or spa massage.  You may need to get comfortable with being uncomfortable-but you will see results.  I have direct experience with pain and a lack of function due to many low back disc herniations that I have suffered from during many years working my way up from laborer to cement finisher.  I lived and worked with pain for many years without any relief.   So I understand what happens to the body and have firsthand experience with repetitive strain injuries.  I have sustained injuries both from work and from working out/training.  I haven’t just gone to school or read a book to learn about these things; I’ve experienced the pain and trauma first hand.  I had to work through rehab after back surgery and have continued to push and strengthen myself physically and spiritually.  I am always seeking to obtain more knowledge about myself.  My focus is to relieve or reduce your pain to make you more functional, because let’s face it-it’s not likely that you’re going to stop working or slow down.  It’s my job to keep you operational. 

I have a diverse background that my help you in your journey.  To quote a colleague, “I stay hungry”, and I’m not much for staying in comfort zones; nobody that is really doing anything does.  And nothing really ever grows in the comfort zone anyway. From an Eagle Scout to excelling in the army, to a construction worker and business owner, to a martial artist and teacher, I am constantly on a pursuit for knowledge and for new ways to challenge myself.  I took a risk to go back to school and completely change career paths later in life, and I haven’t looked back since.
